Gwendoline Christie Joins the Cast of Netflix’s Wednesday
Gwendoline Christie has joined the cast of Netflix’s new series, Wednesday. The series is being directed by Tim Burton and is based on the characters from The Addams Family.
Christie will play Larissa Weems, the principal of Nevermore Academy who still has an axe to grind with her former classmate Morticia Addams (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Jenna Ortega is set to play our lead, Wednesday and will be joined by Luis Guzmán as Gomez Addams, Victor Dorobantu as Thing, Issac Ordonez as Pugsley Addams and George Burcea as Lurch.
Production on the series is set to begin soon and will follow Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy. There she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago — all while navigating her new and very tangled relationships at Nevermore.
